If you are one of those who love hitting the stage in sneakers then be it – pair in your outfits with sneakers and roll all around the Garba Night!
One of the most anticipated festivals of the year – Navratri isn’t just a festival but an emotion. This nine days festival is celebrated with much pomp and show with special Dandiya Nights and celebrations all around the nation. Navratri calls for multi coloured, mirrors and beads studded traditional chaniya choli! But does that mean you can’t put your personal style quotient into your very own navratri outfits? Most certainly you can! Following are some dressing tips that can help you look edgy for these much awaited dance nights!
*For all the Indo-Westerners – Navratri calls for every quirky idea that creeps around your brain. Add western elements to your traditional lehenga-choli. Team up your lehenga with a crop top for a fusion look. While the lehenga will match perfectly with Garba vibe, the crop top will still keep your edgy side living.
* Don’t kill all the traditional styling, instead alter them to your own good. Instead of opting for the traditional mirror work lehenga choli, go for pearls, swarovski crystals and colored stones. Create a style statement by pairing it up with tie-dye, bandhani or a leheriya dupatta in a contrast colour. Does your rebellion side say win-win now?
*Most of us, if not all are in love with the silver oxidized jwelleries these days. Flaunt your love for them by adding them t your outfit. The best way to make your outfit look complete is by accessorising it the right way. If your outfit is plain and simple, wear a chunky necklace to glam up your look. A stack of colourful bangles and a fun potli bag is the perfect way to bring you in the limelight.
*As for men’s fashion, a traditional kurta pyjama is not enough. Invest in a good waistcoat that goes over the kurta to make it look more classy. A jodhpuri pant or dhoti with kurta in subtle colours like deep blue, shades of red is very trendy and is sure to make you look super stylish. Be done with your OOTD with ethnic jootis.
*Go for bright colors! Well, it is about the kind of emotions a color express. Bright colors express joy and that’s what you should be expressing during this Navratri. Save your black for some other day, the day is for bringing your coloured side upfront. Be careful, while playing with the colours. Try to remember the colour wheel theory while sorting an outfit for the night.
* The biggest part of navratri is the dandiya nights which often involve lots of dancing and moving around. Dancing means workout and that means sweat. And if you’re wearing a lot of makeup, it would lead to crackdown of the pile of makeup in form of ugly cakes and that is so yuck! Don’t let that happen and go as light on makeup as possible.
